Ghosts cannot effect a physical change upon the world of the living anymore than common rain and wind can damage a properly installed and managed electrical distribution system. Fear and ignorance are forceful influences in any land where people are kept purposefully docile & incognizant of the inequities perpetuated against them.
Only imbeciles of moderate mental capacity would believe a nation’s problems are due to malevolent spirits, yet this is precisely how the bovine majority explains away their problems.
When people open their eyes to the real causes of their problems they can begin to consider genuine solutions. Until which time, I shall remain less afraid of ghosts and acts of nature than I am of arrogance and ignorance.
